On a sweltering day in the south of France; an alluring girl; her troubled boyfriend; her mysterious mother and a gruff neighbor collide in tragedy as their secrets lead to a series of shocking events.
Between his friends and the family business, Arnaud's summer looks set to be a peaceful one. Peaceful until he runs into Madeleine, as beautiful as she is brusque, a concrete block of tensed muscles and doomsday prophecies. He expects nothing; she prepares for the worst. He takes things as they come, likes a good laugh. She fights, runs, swims, pushes herself to the limit. Given she hasn't asked him for anything, just how far will he go along with her? It's a love story. Or a story of survival. Or both.Written by
I'm a big fan of French films. It's true I haven't seen many of them, but they all had one thing in common: none of them have disappointed me. No matter if we are talking about a comedy, romance, thriller,... they always manage to provide excellent films. Even when the films are about "topics", which is the case of this film...
Summer-Boy-Girl. Sounds familiar right? Not that fast. As a quick recap for this film works, but just for that. You are not going to find here the classical "summer love" story. Weird moments, funny moments, romantic moments, even about-life-reflections moments, the story will keep you engaged from first minute till end. The main two characters are awesome (Madeleine weird-tough-lovely combination rocks). They show up in almost 100% of the scenes, but you never get tired of them. Fantastic work by the main two actors, there was a lot of chemistry between them on film.
This film is not only going to give you a 1h30min of good time, it is also going to provide you a feel-good sensation for the rest of the day. So don't hesitate and give a shoot to this film!
